Actress Daryl Hannah has joined the over 500 people who have been arrested since August 20 for a sit-in protest outside the White House.

The “Splash” and “Wall Street” star was one of nearly 100 people who were arrested on Tuesday for protesting the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, according to a press release from Rainforest Action Network.

The Associated Press reports that Hannah sat by the White House sidewalk and refused to move under orders from U.S. Park Police.

According to Financial Post, Hannah shouted, “No to the Keystone pipeline” as she was being handcuffed.

The planned pipeline will run from the Canadian tar sands in Alberta to refineries on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. It is currently waiting on approval from the White House.

The fact that the Whitehouse is considering approving the Keystone XL is devastating.  This is completely contradictory to Obama and his support of Green Energy.  The Tar Sands is one of the most environmentally destructive projects on earth.  This just goes to show that money and oil rule the country… not our government, not the future of our children, planet and all of the life on it….  “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain…” as he’s the one filling my pockets with money.
